Plans are moving forward for the inaugural Asia Turbomachinery & Pump Symposium (ATPS) to be held in Singapore February 22-25, 2016. The ATPS 2016 advisory committee is chaired by Dr. Luis San Andrés, a professor and researcher with the Texas A&M University department of Mechanical Engineering and long-time leader at the Turbomachinery Laboratory (Turbo Lab) and its affiliated symposia. ATPS 2016 is expected to include a dozen lectures, a dozen tutorials, and scores of case studies on topics such as LNG, wet gas compression systems, vibrations and rotordynamics, gas turbine operation and maintenance, surge in compressors and cavitation in pumps. Lectures and tutorials should include topics such as maintenance, design, and troubleshooting as well as short case studies describing in-the-field problems and their real-world solutions from authors and companies around the globe. More than half of the technical content is expected to be new material at ATPS. The technical program will be developed and overseen by the Asia Technical Advisory Committee, a group comprised of highly respected engineers from both regional and international companies in the industry led by Dr. San Andrés.
